Bertie’s Year Finished

Bertie’s Year, beautifully pieced, hand appliqued and embroidered by my Sister-in-Law, is done. 70 hours of quilting, including stitching in the ditch around all applique and block borders, it is near completion. Only binding is left for her to be finished. I used Superior’s Bottom Line for ditching and swirl fill, top and bottom, Glide with Bottom Line in the bobbin for the borders, sashing, and black triangles around the blocks. The quilting in the colored triangles was done with Glide/Omni (bobbin), or Omni/Omni, depending on the color. Batting is Hobbs Wool. Did I mention, I love my Innova Longarms. Here are photos of the result. Enjoy!

Modern Stripes – Quilt Pattern

Looking for a quick to piece, attractive quilt pattern? Modern Stripes is a great way to showcase those gorgeous fabrics you love! I designed this pattern to use whole strips of fabric, thereby eliminating unsightly seams through your large patches of awesome fabric. This pattern is simple, and very attractive finished. It makes a beautiful baby or lap sized quilt (48″ x 60″) that goes together quickly. You can purchase this pattern from my Shop Patterns tab, or from my Craftsy page.

Halloween Quilt

I finished up the quilting on my Halloween quilt that I started last year. Hey, at least it is finished in time for THIS Halloween! And Halloween fabric never goes out of style. I used black sateen for the backing, which is so pretty! The batting is Hobb’s 80/20. The top threads are Glide, Glide 60wt, and Glow-in-the-Dark thread from Superior. I used Omni and Bottom-line on the back. I love the results!100816_sewscary_front100816_sewscary_borders100816_sewscary_houses100816_sewscary_back
